Details

This is an ad hoc and experimental official statistical release to show the impact of the Covid-19 epidemic and first national lockdown on local authority waste and recycling. The figures it contains are produced from provisional data.

The quarterly figures presented in this publication will not be updated, or added to. The regular publication of a quarterly statistics release ceased in 2016. Whilst the data continues to be collected quarterly, the statistics are now published on an annual basis and are available here Local authority collected waste management - annual results.

These statistics are based on data submitted by local councils in England to WasteDataFlow on the waste they collect and manage.

The detailed guide on the definition of local authority collected waste.

The datasets associated with this publication can be found here ENV19 - Quarterly local authority collected waste management statistics.
